This guitar symposium presents two days of performance, clinics, panels, master classes, and private lessons exploring classical and fingerstyle traditions in modern practice. In this performance and clinic, our visiting artists Berta Rojas and Andrew York will highlight aspects of their approaches to these styles.

Andrew York is a celebrated classical guitarist and composer. He is a Grammy-winning artist with the Los Angeles Guitar Quartet and the Atlanta Symphony. His music crosses stylistic boundaries, expressing his background in jazz, which includes studies with Lenny Breau. His works have been recorded by John Williams, Sharon Isbin, and Jason Vieux.
